OF THE FESTIVAL
This year the location of the festival is Sofiensaal, situated in the central part of the city. The location with its own history! Built in 1826, completely burned down in 2001, but rebuilt and opened once again in 2013. At different times it was a swimming pool, recording venue, Russian Banja (sauna), concert hall, where balls and operas were held. Johann Strauss I performed there regularly and conducted at the opening ball of the house in 1848. Many of the Strauss family's waltzes were first performed there. Now came the time of PRO-AM Competition to be held in this magic venue.
This year we prepared 2 different Packages for you. First package is for beloved by our participants GRAND HOTEL WIEN, which has been famous the world over for exquisite hospitality and refined luxury. Here you can choose between 2 room categories.
